Football League First Division 1982-83

https://i0.wp.com/www.donatello.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Gordon-Smiths-1983-FA-Cup-007.jpgBrighton & Hove Albion came last in the First Division in 1982-83, going down with Manchester City and Swansea City. They nearly became the first club to be relegated and win the FA Cup in the same season, though, as they drew the final with Manchester United. Gordon Smith’s injury-time miss (above) proved costly, as the Seagulls lost 4-0 in the replay.
